Quality Management (SPC/SQC/AI)
SAP MES Quality Management solution helps businesses streamline their quality processes, reduce waste and defects, and ensure compliance with regulatory standards. With a range of features including real-time monitoring and reporting, statistical process control, and non-conformance management, the solution provides end-to-end visibility into the quality of production processes. By leveraging SAP’s powerful quality management tools, businesses can improve their product quality, enhance customer satisfaction, and achieve their production goals more efficiently.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is a key performance indicator used to measure the efficiency and productivity of manufacturing operations. It takes into account three factors: availability, performance, and quality. By analyzing OEE, manufacturers can identify areas for improvement and optimize their production processes to maximize output and profitability.

Energy Management Information System (EMIS) on SAP MII
Discover how integrating an Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence System (EMIS) with SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (MII) can provide real-time visibility into manufacturing operations. The article covers the benefits of using an EMIS, such as improving quality and reducing downtime, and how it can be integrated with SAP MII for data analysis and reporting.
AI Risk and Resilience in Manufacturing
The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in manufacturing has been increasing in recent years, and with good reason. AI can help manufacturers achieve greater efficiency, productivity, and profitability. However, there are also risks associated with the use of AI in manufacturing. This is where the whitepaper “AI Risk and Resilience in Manufacturing” by Sam Castro, SAP comes in.
Work in Progress (WIP) management is a wide concept that comprises everything that occurs between the initial movement of raw materials to the placement of finished goods into inventory. WIP management solutions range from small, highly focused measures like inventory management to broad, end-to-end projects incorporating system connections and process automation. The ultimate goals of any of these solutions are to keep WIP flowing efficiently, eliminate unnecessary inventory accumulation, and support several production objectives at the same time. While narrow-scope solutions produce efficiency and benefits, WIP management strategies that provide insight throughout the whole supply chain produce the best outcomes.
SAP MES (MII/ME/DM) Integrated with Collaborative Robots (Cobots)
Industrial collaborative robots or ‘cobots’ are designed to be able to collaborate with humans in an intelligent and safe manner and are set to become a key part of industry 4.0 and beyond. Let’s have a look at the development of this new wave of cobots and how they’ll impact the future of manufacturing industries. As well, we will discuss the benefits of an intimate SAP MII, cobot and production line integration to achieve: near-human operator results from the cobot, increased productivity and higher quality. But first,
SAP MES (MII/ME/DM) integrated with Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)
Industries from automotive to pharmaceuticals share the goal of increasing workflow efficiency on factory floors and in distribution centers. In manufacturing and warehousing operations, autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are one of the most flexible/versatile material transport solutions within the plant. An AMR is effectively an unmanned vehicle, carrying a payload that is guided automatically around the factory floor. As such, AMRs are starting to become the backbone for modern material management and handling within all industries. In this new business revolution, opportunities driving increased operational excellence are arising for manufacturing and warehousing.
Things to consider – Industrial Control Panel Design
If you pay attention to how a control panel is laid out on the inside then you won’t have a nightmare if and when you have to troubleshoot it later. We always desire to have a clean and well-organized control panel on their shop floor. Let RTS tell you the points we take into consideration to ensure that you get the best industrial control panel. We have been doing this for more than 30 years and we take pride in doing it right!
Is It Time To Upgrade Your Industrial Control System?
Upgrades to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are one of the biggest investments a company can make.
Industry 4.0 offers many new capabilities for ICS which offer high value and ROI, but how can a manufacturer convert their control systems while maintaining uptime, ensuring security and minding cost? Let’s Understand.
